Got mine in today-- will be installing as soon as I float a loan for all the fluid for the front and rear ! LOL
I like the make and look of the Ford Performance cover--- to each his own !!!
I changed mind a month ago to FP one, it took 3.5 quarts of Amsoil, i used Lube locker. They say to use the original bolts. Not the one that comes with the Diff cover. I decided to upgrade the bolts with this: ARP Differential Cover Bolt 437-3002; 12pt Stainless for GM 8.875 in. 12-Bolt. Solid bolts!!! Highly recomend the bolts.

yes it does. but from what i hear from others who used the gasket and bolts. they highly recomend not using it. the gasket that comes with the Diff Cover is paper thin, and people were having problems breaking the bolts. they were recomending to use the original one.
